THE BAND
Chicago 1995 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Soldier Field, Chicago, IL; July 8, 1995. Opening for the Grateful Dead. Very good audience recording.

The Band opened both evenings (July 8, 9) with tight but disappointingly similar sets, featuring mainly the hits. Even so, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and company put on quite a show. Many hoped for for a collaboration with the Grateful Dead on Masterpiece, The Weight, or some other nice surprise, but unfortunately, none occurred. Very sweet versions of Tears of Rage and Bruce Springsteen’s Atlantic City were standouts on both evenings. - musicbox-online.com

+ + + + +

The final song The Band recorded together was their 1999 version of Bob Dylan’s “One Too Many Mornings”, which they contributed to the Dylan tribute album Tangled Up in Blues. On December 10, 1999, Rick Danko died in his sleep at the age of 56. Following his death, the Band broke up for good. In 2002, Robbie Robertson bought all other former members’ financial interests in the group, with the exception of Helm, giving him major control of the presentation of the group’s material, including latter-day compilations. Richard Bell died of multiple myeloma in June 2007. On April 17, 2012, it was announced via Helm’s official website that he was in the “final stages of cancer”; he died two days later. - wikipedia

  8. Sounds like a soundboard recording to me! And this was likely a historic recording - this show opened for the Dead’s next to last concert with Jerry Garcia. A little more useful info, I hope, than the twaddle which normally comes as comments in these shows. By the way, this will be my only comment on this thread - accept no substitutes.

  9. Tony Pizza, your kind is not wanted here. Please go away and never return.

  16. The retarded children continue to play their games . The unfortunate thing is some low IQ individuals can’t tell the difference. I haven’t commented yet here .

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  17. I’m sure it’s probably Hebrew Mark and maybe a few of his cronies .

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  18. David , Antichrist, Derrick, Fed Ex and other corporate sponsors are behind this ridiculous attempt to change the names of sports teams like The Washington Redskins . Once money is involved , heads roll . Polls have been taken and 90 percent of all native Americans are fine with Redskins , Indians, Braves , Blackhawks etc . Most look at the names as a sign of respect, not insult . The white liberals are behind all of this , just like they are behind the attempts to remove statues , confederate flags , Aunt Jemima and other things that have been around for decades .

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  19. Liberals think they know what’s best , even when the people themselves whom they crusade for have no problem with it , and the ones that do are usually prodded by the liberals, and never thought of it until someone brought it up .

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  20. Native Americans still live on reservations. Poverty , lack of opportunities still exist for them . Where is the liberal outrage over that ? It’s much easier to crusade for the name change of sports teams than to really make a difference on important issues. Liberals want to feel good about themselves, with as little effort as possible. Digging in and really trying to change important things is too much work for them . It’s easier to listen to Don Lemonhead every night.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  21. Triple h , this country is tucked up wit liberals, coons , hi yellers and Jew bastards . Guess they’ll try to get rid of John Wayne movies next .

    By Derrick on Jul 9, 2020

  22. Movies like the searchers , The Comancheros , Stagecoach, all them great westerns . What bout Little Big man , wit Dustin Hoffman , Dances with wolves , Soldier Blue , Fort Apache, all them great fuckin John Ford westerns . The motherfuckers is probably coming for them next . The bastards . They has already ruined sports with all the fuckin coons and hi yellers , they is tryin to ruin everything for white folks

    By Derrick on Jul 9, 2020

  23. What bout them great tv westerns like wagon train , bonanza, gunsmoke and the Virginian . Have gun will travel etc ? Bastards is comin for them next

    By Derrick on Jul 9, 2020

  27. Sending children back to school is akin to sending jews to the ovens. We still have a bunch of oven dodging jews destroying our country. George Soros.Even those 2 niggers desean and the other monkeys are against the jews and world domination

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

Thats bs. Hitler and screwey louie and you didnt know better. right. if it was dandy don meredith, howard cosell, jerry quarry making those remarks..gone

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  29. After two days of combatively defending Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson, former NBA player Stephen Jackson apologized for his choice of words while talking with CNN’s Don Lemon on Wednesday. It wasnt a real apology.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  30. The contentious interview with Lemon was preceded by a report from CNN on DeSean Jackson’s Instagram story post featuring fake quotes from Adolf Hitler about a Jewish conspiracy against Black people, his apologies and Stephen Jackson’s defense of the player

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  31. Same tired ole rhetoric day after day. I’m outta here for good!

    By Nelson on Jul 9, 2020

  32. Don’t be like that Nels, I look forward to waking up in the morning and the first thing I do is get on here and ramble on and on day after day with the same old rhetoric. Other readers love it!

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  33. Yeah HHH and I love you

    By Derrick on Jul 9, 2020

  34. You might be gay Derrick but I’m not sure that I am.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  35. Is there a recording of The Band from the next night on July 9? Would love to hear it if it exists.

    By Andrew on Jul 9, 2020

  36. I love being pooped on by guys but I’m not sure that means I’m gay.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  37. Guys pee on me a lot too.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  38. Last time I was in a club bathroom using the urinal, the guy behind me peed on my feet. I got a boner! No one could tell, my thing is so small.

    By HHH on Jul 9, 2020

  39. That was me H, I hate your fucking guts.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  40. H, I know you’re a pussy who wouldn’t do anything if you’re humiliated in public.

    By David Duke on Jul 9, 2020

  41. I’m a pussy too, DD. Please humiliate me.

    By Derrick on Jul 9, 2020

  42. DD, it my birthday today. I wants u to spank my butt and then urinate and poop on me and in my mouth Then Ill swap cum with Marky

    By Derrick on Jul 10, 2020

  43. Not me triple h and DD . Ignore the motherfuckin ass holes

    By Derrick on Jul 10, 2020

  44. Derrick, David , unfortunately you have to keep reminding people here that phonies and middle schoolers are behind many of these sign offs . Retarded , dumb individuals run amok here .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  45. David , I agree , black apes can say anything and get away with it , even praising Adolf Hitler . Let a white person say what Jackson said

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  46. Yeah man did you see the nyc mayor painting BLM in front of trump tower with his nigger wife

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  47. Pretty soon they will rename the Lincoln Tunnel, The George Washington Bridge, They already have the Jackie Robbinson Parkway in Brooklyn/Queens

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  48. How come BLM didnt say anything about that little 8 year old nigger girl getting killed. They pick and choose when its convenient like whitey cop beatin down a spade

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  49. We know Derrick. Can you believe those 2 spooks pretending they didnt know the remarks they made werent anti-semitic. Bullshit. They knew exactly what they were saying. If it was you me or HHH our nuts would have been fried already. Guilty until proven innocent

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  50. David , I respect the old time black leaders more than the black apes of today . Jackie Robinson, Frank Robinson, Bill Russell , Lew Alcindor, Cassius Clay . MLK etc . All educated, no tattoos and wore suits . No hip hop crap back then and most blacks were family men .married to Black women . None of that baby mama stuff , spreading their seeds everywhere and screwing mudshark white sluts . The black leaders from the sixties and seventies weren’t trying to eliminate us , just wanted equal opportunities.

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  51. Back then it was MLK , Today it’s Al Sharpton . Big difference.

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  52. Those guys all were educated. Today the talk like they have a mouth full of food .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  53. Never realized De Blasio is married to a black ape . That sucks .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  54. Yeah HHH. and dig this. she was a lezbo. Chirlane McCray. Take a look at her pix. She looks like she belongs in national geographic

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  55. The niggers today want to be like whitey was back in the day. They have a video of the mayor and the niglet wife rollerpainting BLM on 5th Ave. Its amazing if a nigger kills their own, no protests. Always was white cop kills a nigger, sharpton comes out and protests.

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  56. Yeah and you all have these white hipsters and millenials walking with these apes shouting Black Lives Matter.. No Justice No peace. When Sharpton tried to march in our neighborhoo, we broke up the protest. we started throwing bottles at him. Back then he was a fat fuck. Today his head looks bigger than the rest of his body

    By David Duke on Jul 10, 2020

  57. Lyin’ cheatin’ hurtin that’s all you seem to do
    Messin’ around with every guy in town
    Puttin’ me down for thinkin’ of someone new
    Always the same playin’ your game
    Drive me insane trouble is gonna come to you
    One of these days and it won’t be long
    You’ll look for me but baby I’ll be gone
    This is all I gotta say to you woman
    Your time is gonna come
    Your time is gonna come
    Your time is gonna come
    Your time is gonna come

    By Mark on Jul 10, 2020

  58. There have been three types of scientific explanations offered in putative support for racial discrimination, each of them having a lengthy history. One approach has been to claim that there are biological dangers involved in racial interbreeding. Indeed, it was precisely on the basis of this belief that in the United States and South Africa for many years there were statutory prohibitions against intermarriage. The first supposed evidence for this conclusion was provided in the mid-nineteenth century primarily by physicians, who claimed that, as a result of their mixed blood, “mulattoes” were considerably more susceptible to disease than either of their parents and thus exceptionally short-lived. In addition, were persons of mixed race to intermarry, according to leading anthropologists at the time, they became progressively less fertile, eventually becoming completely sterile.

    In the early twentieth century, shortly after the scientific community’s discovery of Gregor Mendel’s work led to a new, exciting branch of biology, geneticists warned that the intermarriage of “far apart” races could produce what they called genetic “disharmonies”. Charles Benedict Davenport, a world renowned researcher at the time, observed, for example, that if a member of a tall race, such as the Scots, should mate with a member of a small race, such as the Southern Italians, their offspring could inherit the genes for large internal organs from one parent and for small stature from the other, resulting in viscera that would be too large for the frame. Naturally these claims were not tenable for long, but they were soon replaced by assertions less easily disprovable, as some social scientists insisted that the children of mixed race parentage were morally and intellectually inferior to either of the parents.

    Although belief in such genetic mismatches was once fairly widespread within the scientific community and cited specifically to rationalize various racially oppressive policies, this notion now enjoys far less credibility.

    By Jeff Parsons on Jul 10, 2020

  59. Jeff , those past theories make a lot of sense. I’ve always maintained that there are different races for a reason . What do you have when you breed a German Shepherd to a pit bull ? You have a mutt . The white is the Shepherd and the black ape is the pit bull .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  60. Asians and Indians ( from India , not to be confused with native Americans) are much stricter than whites about this interracial mating stuff . You rarely see them breeding with black apes , In fact I’ve never seen it .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  61. Many asian women do come to America, mainly from the Philippines and marry wealthy men old enough to be their grandparents to escape poverty. Many women in their teens and twenties marry men in their seventies. Mainly to get to America. The hope is that those guys will die off soon and they’ll inherit their fortunes.

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  62. Loving vs the state of Virginia opened the doors for this interracial marriage crap that is rampant today 1967 was the year . Of course LBJ that redneck southern racist , started it all with his civil rights signings in previous years to insure election in 64 . He actually hated blacks and was regularly heard calling them niggers in the White House and when he thought no one was listening. He referred to MLK as that damn trouble making nigger many times .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  63. Johnson used the black apes to get elected and to try and secure his legacy as a visionary. He also won because he painted Goldwater a Jew as a war monger who would incite the Russians into pressing the nuclear button . Remember the commercial of the little girl picking leaves off the flower ?

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  64. He then escalates the viet Nam war to keep the economy going . The only difference between LBJ and Trump is Johnson was smarter and didn’t have to be as politically correct because of the times . Can you imagine Trump calling Sharpton a nigger ?

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  65. David you’re right , Sharpton looks like a bobble head doll . That huge head attached to a body that looks like a broomstick. Funny looking fuck .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  66. Hey USA do you know that the rest of the world is just laughing at you ? The morons on this site are as ridiculous as your numbskull president .

    By BASIL on Jul 10, 2020

  67. No argument from me about Trump . The man is an idiot , as is Pence and all of his brown nosing governors. De Santis , Kemp especially.

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  68. I do like that trump isn’t PC , but he’s handling the virus thing poorly .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  69. Agree with him about his support of cops , statues, confederate flag , stance against black apes though .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  70. The virus is what’s going to bring him down . He’s clueless about that .

    By HHH on Jul 10, 2020

  71. Even with Trump’s mishandling of the virus, I’d still let Him shit in my mouth.

    By HHH on Jul 11, 2020

  72. Trump tweets LAW AND ORDER! , then pardons admitted criminals, Whyfor thinketh such actiones?

    By Juergen Mahoggoff on Jul 11, 2020

  73. Ya all should just get rid of these Comments that aren’t about the MUSIC
